BMW i8 plug-in hybrid to underpin upcoming M8 supercar

Word has come from Car Magazine that BMW is moving forward with a supercar of its own: the M8 – formerly known as the M1.

Nowadays it seems like virtually every automaker is getting into the supercar game. Porsche is bringing out the 918, Lexus has the LFA (although it’s been discontinued) Audi has the gorgeous R8 in its arsenal, and Acura keeps teasing the NSX, And while we won’t get into lingering economic questions that arise when looking out upon a sea of $200,000 + supercars, we will happily drool over these masterpieces of might and metal by leaving the financial viability of such track-going, road-taming supercars alone.

Aimed to debut on BMW’s 100th birthday in 2016, the M8 will reportedly be based on the high-end i8plug-in hybrid slated for unveiling in 2014. As strange as it might sound, this sharing of bits between an eco car and a supercar is quite smart.
